Dad's Shed

Morning all hope your are all well and had a good weekend, I am sorry for missing in action I have been without internet all weekend, I have phoned the broadband company and they have informed me that the problem is inside the house and not the line! oh joy where do you start!!.
I am now using my mobile broadband and I must say it's quicker so  see how we go.

Anyway my card today is one I made my Dad for Father's day and it was perfect for him too.
When I was young My Mum Dad Grandma and Grandad used to dabble in making their own wine and beer, some ok some not so, so when I saw this Cd on create and craft I just had to order it and you'll see by the image why.
I used Garden Sheds Cd and printed the main image a decoupage and used green A4 card to make the base, I heat embossed the sentiment and in my stash I had a charm with thanks dad on it, so I attached it with some ribbon, needless to say Dad loved it.

The Challenges I would like to enter my card into are-

Make It Monday - Anything`Goes Dream Valley Challenges - For that Special Guy.

Thank you for stopping by.

  14. Great card Julie and perfect for a "Home Brewing" Dad! I don't think my Dad 'brews' any more, but it's rubbed off as one of my brothers and himself both brew ... some good, and some not so! Hope you get your broadband sorted.
